Building secure clouds using HashiCorp tools

Being able to "take advantage of cloud computing" is often cited as a key enabler in helping organisations to innovate fast and providing a platform for rapid expansion. Doing so effectively, in a manner which is secure, and prevents vendor lock-in (being able to move cloud providers as and when required), does however pose some interesting challenges.
In this talk I will explore and provide insight into how a department within the UK government are combining tools like Packer, Terraform and Vault amongst others as part as part of their cloud automation solution to accomplish just this.
